Spencer Dinwiddie will not participate in Orlando

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie will not participate in the season restart in Orlando, he announced on Tuesday.

Dinwiddie says he consulted with team doctors after he received a second positive test for COVID-19. Dinwiddie and the team decided that it would be in his "best interest" to stay home.

Dinwiddie is not the first Nets player to opt-out of the restart. He joins DeAndre Jordan and Wilson Chandler, who announced their decisions last week.

The Nets (30-34) are currently the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
